LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) -- Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel has announced lawsuits against five current or former Florida-based telemarketing companies.
McDaniel said Thursday that the firms made illegal "robocalls" and that they violated state and federal "Do Not Call" laws with their offers to reduce credit-card rates.
Named in the lawsuits are Associated Accounting Specialists Inc., of Port St. Lucie, Fla.; Business First Solutions Inc., of Orlando, Fla.; Financial Ladder Inc. of Saint Cloud, Fla.; Financial Management Partners Inc. of Maitland, Fla.; and the now-defunct Customer Global Services LLC.
The lawsuit asks that the firms cease illegal telemarketing activities and provide restitution to any affected consumers.
